does your brain run 90 miles a minute like mine does? oh. my. goodness.
i survived my 11-hour (self-imposed) internet fast yesterday.
it wasn't easy, and i felt a little lost every time i reached a natural break in my day. but...
i got an enormous amount of stuff done around here without a computer to distract me. my house is clean and sparkly, and we're 90% packed and ready to leave tomorrow!
john brought "my precious" home and i calmly finished dinner (enormous willpower right there, friends) before i sat down to check my email.
wanna guess how many email messages i had in my inbox? it was a LOT.
i got so much done yesterday that i have time to squeeze in a hike with the "mountain goats" this morning. that's the name that my friend's daughter gave our little hiking group--flattering, isn't it? pray for me...cause we're all taking our kids and i don't do so well when mine get all whiney on the trail.
i'm craving homemade strawberry ice cream. we made some on monday night and it was out of this world delicious! here's the recipe. seriously, it was as good as Coldstone Creamery. i am so making this again. and trying to decide whether to have the leftovers for breakfast. and yeah, that means i ate the sugar that i swore off. it's summer...you have to live a little.
i took the girls to get some new crocs last night. i don't like shopping at all, but i really don't like shopping with girls! they want/think they need everything they see.
i bought them both a new pair of shoes, but they went to bed crying because they wished they'd bought something different. who knew buyers remorse kicked in this young? oh my. i want to cry too because that means a trip back to the store to return them and find something else. i don't know if i have it in me.
sarah needs a swimsuit and she tried on at least 15 different ones last night. i think she tried on every.single.one.in.her.size and we still didn't end up buying one. i'm having trouble finding one for her that is modest enough for my taste. have you seen girls swimsuits lately?? shocking. makes me dread swimsuit shopping when that girl is a teenager.
i'm hopelessly behind on all the blogs i read. and i don't have time today to read them all. i'll get caught up one of these days.
i'm loving the auto-post feature on blogger so much. please don't think for a minute that i get up before 6am. just can't do it.
must go...happy wednesday.
